Thumann's Pork and Beef natural casing franks in Danbury, CT vicinity?

Hi folks. I really wish I had thought to post this a few days ago... I'm having a party tomorrow and I want to get Thumann's Pork and Beef natural casing franks. Does anyone know a place in the Danbury area where I can buy them?

I guess, as an alternative, does anyone have a suggestion for another natural casing hot dog that's easier to find?

Thank you!

  1. I'd call Stew Leonard's in Danbury, see if they have them.

    1. Having grown up in the New Haven area, we always had Hummel's and Roesler's hot dogs. I'll buy Hummel's from the deli section if we just want a dog.

      On the other hand, if I were having a party I'd go over to Karl Ehmer's and pick up some of their brats and other of their German style sausages. You still pair them with saurkraut, onions and mustard, but put them on a shorter, stubbier roll. Unique and delicious.
